While I have no direct knowledge of the area that you will cruise
your idea that you will provide your self with protein from fishing
may be a little optimistic. I you want to start a new thread on that subject I will post what I know as an ex professional fisher
man. Some of may need to be in pm cause … !!!!!
The good news is that that most of eat way too much protein. Some really good points have all ready been made and perhaps they should be considered further. One of the things that is not in the discussion is how you are going to cook and the impact that it may have. For example pasta is quick easy food to cook but most of what you heat up is thrown (unless you add this to the washing
up water) where as Asian noodles which have similar nutritional value's use only a small amount of hot water
to soak. Another thing that you should consider is what happens if you primary method of cooking
cease to work. Do you have a backup plan? Let face it you would not head
off with no back up to you nav system. An example of a back up plan may be cooking fish and/or root vegies by warping in foil and pack next to the iron horse, when in use of course.
One of the posts made the point that if you don't eat something at home you probably wont on the boat. I would expand that point by saying that if you want to experiments do so at home where it is easy to throw some thing away and start again. The second suggest that I would make is that changes to diet would be a process of evolution not revolution, counter revolutions of either type are no on fun on board. Use a lot of powered milk in a diet that suddenly has less fibre in it – concrete!
Start any changes before you go.
Another of the issues that could do will further consideration is the storage
of foods. Like you I don't bother with a fridge. Although I find my self back on the hard
for a while I still don't bother using a fridge at home. Most fruits and root vegetables will keep much better if kept dry, ventilated and so they don't bruise, try using old tights, washed and preferably not you mother in laws cause that make ever thing taste wrong
. One of the methods I used on board of keeping cooked food was by reheating it in a pressure cooker and leaving it sealed.
As suggested get hold of a cook book that pre-dates fridges in most homes and you will get some good ideas on recipes
. The list that you have is about right except for fresh foods.
May all your winds blow fresh.
